Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Key to Essay DDN #23

This is my first post. Can you believe it: Finally I found the groove how to love the Grateful Dead. I'm 48 years old from Amsterdam, the Netherlands and since childhood a stones fan. The book from Sam Cutler YCAGWYW made it for me. Sam's way of writing got me into the shape that's needed for a body to get into the Dead. I'm so much under a spell that I'm busy reading Skeleton Key / bought also the Fong Torres scrapbook and ordered a t shirt and the Golden Road Box just to prepare for Autumn.
When reading the Skeleton dictionary I found on page 75 a mentioning of Dwork's essay on "The most important greatful dead concert of all time" about Veneta Oregon 8/27/72.
I googled all variables to death, emailed John Dwork but did not find nor got a reply from him. So my question is: would someone of you be so kind to scan this article for me? Perhaps you now a link where to find it. I could not find any lead.
Being a huge fan of the Rolling Stones 1972 tour, I really envy you deadheads for getting the Europe 72 box with all shows. Jagger CS are incapable of taking so good care of their fans.
Have a nice summer and hope to get a reply at
erwin@hoetjes.net or erwin@kevl.com
Best Regards,
Erwin J. Hoetjes

I like a little Stones, meself.

I started reading Keith Richards's "Life" every morning with my coffee when I moved into my new office this past spring. Couldn't wait till tomorrow so I finished it tonight.

I just ordered "STP" so I guess I will start that on Friday.

Have you streamed any of the shows at sugarmegs.org?

There are some excellent Pink Floyd shows at sugarmegs, also, (if you are into that sort of thing.)

If you read GARCIA, be sure to check out this site...
http://blairjackson.com/
It has a lot of material that was cut from the book before the final version. Plus some other cool stuff.

Welcome to your new hobby!

I can't scan it for you but I think the Dwork article you want may be the one he co-wrote in the "Deadhead's Taping Compendium Volume One". It may still be available (ISBN of my copy is 0805053980). All three volumes are excellent; a supplement fourth volume went out of print before I knew it existed.

Hey, at least the Stones finally released the Ladies & Gentlemen '72 film on DVD....great show!
While the Dead have STILL not released the "Sunshine Daydream" film of the Veneta show. (Although it's easily available on 'bootlegs.')

I think that Dwork essay is the same one that's in the Taping Compendium. Personally I thought it was really over-the-top....it mainly talks about the show as a religious experience. The Compendium as a whole is full of lots of useful essays, so it's worth seeking out.

By the way, the American Book of the Dead (Oliver Trager) is another encyclopedia-style approach to the band you might find useful. Blair Jackson's book Garcia is the best overall biography of the band; and you would probably like Phil's book Searching for the Sound which is full of insights & memories. The Illustrated Trip is a big coffee-table-style timeline book which is nonetheless stuffed with info, so I recommend that too.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll check them out. As for Ladies and Gentlemen, ofcourse it as great that they finally officially released this show on DVD, but the turndown for a hardcore fan like me, who owned already 4 different bootleg versions of the same movie, is that they didnot add any of the songs which were not included. Rocks off is the best song for me from the 72 tour and is not included. They taped the Ft Worth Shows for this movie and they played only once and for ever Sweet Black Angel. They forgot to check around. Mick's too busy with 4 wives 10 girlfriends and 15 mistresses..
I'll check out on the Dead info.

Hmm LIA, I own both Garcia and Long Strange Trip. I just started LST recently and find it pretty interesting and full of information. I haven't read Garcia yet but plan to after LST. But you think Garcia is the best about the band? So should I just give up on LST and start Garcia?

I made my recommendations considering that this guy just got into the Dead. Long Strange Trip, while a goldmine of info, is also long, disorganized & cluttered - not a book I'd read straight through, more like a reference source - while Garcia is an easy, even compelling read. Plus I like it more for other reasons; but LST has certainly been a close companion for me as well.

I see. I'm not particularly fond of the interludes but so far I've been reading it straight through.
